Sound Deadening

Our sound deadening solutions can provide higher noise reduction than other types of solution and at much lower cost.  For details and examples, click the links below:-

Sound Deadening for Industrial Machines and Fans

A major benefit of our specialist sound deadening solutions is their low installation cost, which can save companies thousands of pounds. Also, our sound damping solutions usually provide a much higher noise reduction than other noise dampening methods.  Consequently we have solved many noise nuisance problems after other products (from other companies) had been tried, but failed to provide sufficient sound reduction to satisfy the complainants. This, coupled with their high noise reduction and durability, has made our sound dampening solutions very popular.

Our industrial sound deadening solutions have been applied to all types of machine in all types of factory, successfully reducing noise in the workplace and helping companies to comply with the noise at work regulations.  Our solutions have also successfully solved many noise nuisance problems where the sound from fans, air conditioners, chillers and other industrial machines were causing nuisance and annoyance to people living near a factory. 

Our solutions (which are not widely available) use advanced technology and engineering techniques to provide high noise reduction coupled with exceptional durability compared with other, more common noise damping solutions.

Best Sound Deadening Material & Method

Sound deadening usually means applying noise damping materials to machine panels or chutes that vibrate and thereby radiate high levels of noise.  The panel vibration can be generated by a reciprocating engine or a hydraulic pump, for example. The vibration is usually transmitted from the source (pump, engine, etc.) to external panels which radiate high noise levels.  Panel vibration can also be generated by impacts due to product falling onto chutes or ducts. 

A common form of noise deadening is to adhere flexible rubber-type material to the vibrating panel or chute.  This type of noise damping material usually provides little or no sound reduction when applied to vibrating panels.  When applied to the inside of chutes or ducts to cushion product impacts, this material can provide high noise reduction.  But, often the sound deadening material is quickly eroded away by constant product impacts on its surface, which means the loud noise soon returns.  Also the material that is eroded away can contaminate the product being handled by the chute or duct, and this can cause quality problems.  This means that flexible rubber-like products are not normally the best sound deadening material to reduce impact noise.  Our specialist noise deadening solution (which uses materials that are different to flexible rubber-type material) combines very high noise reduction with a highly durable surface, so it doesn’t erode at all, yet still provides a high noise reduction.  

There is an example in a carrot packing factory on sound dampening for chute impacts where our noise dampening method was chosen for multi-head weighers, chutes etc. 

Best Sound Damping Material

The best sound damping material varies with the type of application, product and impact (where product impacts on chutes etc. cause a noise problem).  We visit the factory and carry out tests to assess the situation, then recommend the best sound damping material and noise reduction method for each particular application.

We have provided industrial sound damping material / noise solutions for many of the best known and largest companies in the UK and for all types of machine.  Although most of our work is for industrial companies, we also provide solutions to any reasonable sized commercial company, using sound dampening materials to help reduce the noise from fans, blowers, air conditioners, air handling units (AHU), HVAC systems, chutes, ducts, etc.

We can also provide highly effective noise deadening solutions for buildings.  Our solutions use sound dampening materials to reduce the echo and sound levels inside a building and / or to reduce the sound transmitted from, or into, a building.

There are several other ways to reduce noise beside using sound damping methods. Other methods can sometimes be more suitable for some types of machine, chute or duct. Outlines of all the noise reduction options available are shown in our guide on how to reduce noise at work.
